or opportunities? with an advanced degree in education from capella university, you'll have the knowledge to meet these challenges and make a difference in the lives of students. let's get started at >>> even as it seems that many republican politicians are johnny come latelies to the issue of immigration reform, there are conservative advocates on this issue for some time and most notably former governor of florida jeb bush has been pushing the party to more warmly embrace the latino electorate. next month, former governor bush and his partner at the goldwater institute will release their book "immigration wars, forging an american solution" and last week they penned an op-ed in the "wall street journal," that in some conservative circles the word comprehensive immigration reform is an epithet-a code word for amnesty. people who have such declaration s when associated with the border states are moving toward something more. go and now the author is joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> you have said that the legislation act since 1952 has not held up well and in short, we need
from president clinton is this public leadership, this education function? >> i really agree with that and i think that people used -- people in your business really used to complain about the president's length of his state of the unions. but really he thought of that as a time where i can really lay this out, i can slain to people what i'm trying to achieve, i can reup my contract with the american people about what's positive, his job approval as i said always went up when he did that. but i think that really is a critical element of what a president needs to do in the second term. the other thing he needs to do is use the full force of his executive power. when it comes to moving on clean energy and climate change, when it comes to implementing health care, when it comes to many of the president's other priorities, he's not going to get a lot of help from the republicans on capitol hill, but he can achieve success through the deft use now in the process of building out his second term cabinet, more use of the cabinet to try to get those things done. i think it will be cri
are better at solving health care. >> health care, education, job growth. >> it will get worse even from this point. >> humane rhetoric? is it enough? >> cantor appeared to move to the middle. >> our house republican majority stands ready. >> calling for immigration reform, big day for immigration. >> time to provide an opportunity. >> it is going to get worse for legal residents and citizenship. >> providing citizenship and a path for legalization. >> for those who were brought to this country as children. >> is the gop learning its lesson on immigration. >> eric cantor is worried about his own political future. >> that shows how lost they all feel. >> it is going to get worse even from this point. >> the first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers. so said shakespeare in henry the xi, today, he turns the wrath away from the lawyers, who actually do great things sometimes for justice. today, shakespeare would surely aim all his homicidal rage at marketeers, at madmen, the self-proclaimed marketing geniuses who spend their days convincing companies with something to sell that they will
effects on economy and education if budget cuts go into effect on march. the sequester, among those testifying, shirley ann jackson, and joins me now.the sequester, testifying, shirley ann jackson, and joins me now.into effect on. the sequester, among those testifying, shirley ann jackson, and joins me now. welcome. you're no stranker to washington. born and raised here and former head of the nuclear regulatory commission. what are your big concerns about science and technology and the effects of the sequester if it goes in to effect? >> the big concerns are these. science and technology and the basic research that under girds it have been the the basis of over 50% of our gdp growth for 50 years. but the things we take for granted today are based on research that occurred over a 10, 20, 30 year period, even 50 years. and so one has to understand the source of idea generation. secondly, one has to have human talent. and that stall letalent is supp fellowships that come out of federal support. if the sequester occurs and occurs in a blunt way that can with devastating effects on resea
to cantor today. >> we'll advance proposals aimed at producing results in areas like education, health care, innovation, and job growth. our solutions will be based on the conservative principles of self-reliance, faith in the individual, trust in family, and accountability in government. our goal is to ensure that every american has a fair shot to the earn success and achieve their dreams. >> what a cover-up. your party ought to be ashamed of itself. you spent months in every state legislative capital trying to keep black people and poor people from voting or young people. now you're out pretending that you care about opportunity in america. it's an absurdity eric cantor -- >> the speech by eric cantor was a very good speech. >> if it wasn't given by him maybe. >> eric cantor is a good guy. he's got a family. he cares about this country. he's a patriot. he cares about making government work better and this is a reform speech. i thought -- because it was practical. i think for republicans they can't be the party of bob dole caring only about the deficit. they have to care about practical --
.1 million new jobs added in this economy and i think that the problems are we have to invest in education, make sure people have opportunities and make sure that the government doesn't pull back right now. >> what we also know is there are republicans who still strongly say and assert that the stimulus did not work and they do not believe in exactly what you just said. >> economists, the majority of those interviewed by "wall street journal" believes the stimulus works. 3 million jobs because of the stimulus and other thing is about the education thing i mentioned before. the unemployment rate for people with college degrees are higher is 3.7%. unemployment rate for people who don't have high school diplomas, 12%. education matters. why exactly would we want to cut investment in our infrastructure and education at this time? >> zachary, let's play what alan krueger said. he was on with chuck todd earlier talking about the politics of what we're watching as it relates to this recovery. let me play it, please. >> you have a pretty good jobs report and i know, you know, i know what you'll pr
in national security or education or clean energy, not to mention the growth of the entire economy should be put in jeopardy just because folks in washington couldn't come together or eliminate a few special interest tax loopholes or government programs that we agree need some reform. >> house speaker john boehner responded with a statement reading "republicans have twice voted replace these arbitrary cuts with common-sense cuts and reforms that protect our national defense. we believe there is a better way to reduce the deficit but americans do not support sacrificing real spending cuts for more tax hikes." >>> efforts by the white house to head off spending cuts come as a new government report predicts the budget deficit will drop below $1 trillion for the first time during obama's presidency. the congressional budget office which assumes that the cuts will go into effect march 1st says the government will run a deficit of $845 billion this year. that's compared to $1.1 trillion short fall. the outlook predicts the improvements will not last. it warns that an aging population will drive
education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs. and it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks out there still looking for work. our economy right now is headed in the right direction. and it will stay that way as long as there aren't any more self-inflicted wounds coming out of washington. >> this self-inflicted wound would include massive cuts to virtually every government program. from medicare and housing to head start and food aid for children. the president wants republicans to delay those cuts through a balanced approach that would force corporations and the wealthy to give up some of their special tax break. and pay their fair share. >> these modest reforms in our social insurance programs have to go hand in hand with tax reform. so the wealthiest individuals and corporations can't take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren't available to most americans. there is no reason that the jobs of thousands of americans who work in national security or education or clean energy, not to
platform, education, flexible working hours, closing loopholes in the tax code. things that are broadly popular across the aisle s. that the republican approach to emphasize things that are popular in their party platform and just not talk about the other stuff? >> well, i think that even uttering the phrase working moms is progress for this republican party. >> right. >> but what matters is the details behind it. and whether you're talking about big cuts in discretionary spending that might include education spending, health care spending, child care, et cetera, when you talk about committing federal resources, tax money, to these kinds of problems, that's where the republicans go on a different direction and most of the american people at a time where they're worried about the future, where they're worried about the state of the economy, where they really frankly all that optimistic about the private economy providing them jobs, they're going to look to the government for help. if the republicans continue to be philosophically opposed to that idea which they are at root then all kinds
children from getting the supports they need to get educated in school including children with disabilities. whether we are going to be supporting the elderly to help with their heating bill or in the summertime, their air conditioning. whether we provide homeless assistance for people who are homeless to get them back into permanent housing. we are talking about a series of programs that not only help our citizens get back to work. they are fundamental to ensuring families will just survive to the end of the paycheck. >> practically speak the alternative if you look at what president obama laid out yesterday rveg yesterday, he was asking them to take it off the table and put the idea of a grand bargain back on the table. it takes that same basic $1.2 trillion target and this time about half from new revenues and closing loopholes and deductions. the other half is from sbrilthsmentes and this idea of cpi which is a reduction in benefits for people. how would you compare the grand bargains to the programs in which you are talking about if the sequester takes place. is one worse than the othe
of switch gears on messaging. he is expected to tout new education initiatives, ways to simplify the tax code, kush health care costs, immigration reform. ron fournier with the "national journal," jonathan, asked this question -- "with a democratic tide threatening to crush the dpop, is it enough to just tweak talking points?" what do you say to that question? >> i think there's a tendency among policy maker, politicians who are in the legislative chamber all day, to be using this policy. they talk about the fiscal cliff, about entitlement reform, about debalancing the budget. but it's devoid of any value to the average voter. so fournier may have a point there, but i think it's critical for republicans to be talking about the values behind these policies, that we're always promoting. fiscal responsibility, why are we doing that? because that's a path to prosperity. i think that's a critical thing that eric cantor is doing today and i applaud him for doing it. >> that is what he does seem to be wanting to talk about, connecting the dots. and steve, he isn't just talking about -- you know
happens and your mom is old and dies and you take on that and no other education, it's kind of hard to get that person to step outside of the life and so for me that's the interesting component. now, is me being able to step in to the people's lives and can i rationalize what they do? it's hard because i have this greater knowledge but for them they live in a very insular environment and that insular environment is one that dictates to make a living and put food in their mouth and just what they're doing and kind of the problem that we have here. there's a demand in the united states for the drugs and there's a demand over there for them to survive and so that's the big picture. >> well, you know, we mentioned drugs and weapons. but what about exotic animals? how big is that industry and how can toure get a dragon? >> i can't help him facilitate anything illegal. >> come on. >> talk to him after the show. >> yeah right. okay. i mean, the thing is, i didn't realize how big the illegal animal trade is but the crime syndicates just as big if not bigger than the biggest drug syndicates in the
by the taliban stopped her crusading for the right to educate girls is now speaking out for the first time since the near fatal attack and two more surgeries only this weekend. >> today you can see that i'm alive. i can speak. i can see you. i can see everyone, and today i can speak and i'm getting better day by day. this is a second life. i want to serve the people, and i want every girl, every child to be educated, and for that reason we have organized mulala fund. >> northbound's kier is in birmingham, england, outside the hospital. kier, this is remarkable. it is just a miracle of her spirit, of the doctors who have helped her, the family who has been with her. she's now also the youngest nominee for the nobel peace prize. what are you hearing from the medical team around her about her prognosis? >> that's right. incredible. she is still in the hospital behind me recovering. what an amazing recovery. as those comments on camera, the first since she was shot by the taliban, attacked simply for campaigning for the rights of young women to be educated. in those comments she has such poise and y
. republicans really need comprehensive immigration reform. i think today is the first education. >> are you getting any indication that you can come to an agreement on path to citizenship? not just on border security and on doing something with the h1b visas. >> i think that in the end we should never create a subclass of people. everybody should always be able to reach citizenship. i think it's important because i want them to have all the same responsibilities and obligations that i and you have as citizens of this nation along with all of the benefits, because that really makes the nation stronger. where you talk about fabric, that's the glue that keeps us together, right? self-departation is the way to get rid of 12 million undocumented workers. wait a minute. sb 1070, the anti-immigration law in arizona, that should be replicated in the other 49 states, and romney said he would veto the dream act. what a sea change to talking about they can stay in this country and we need to fix our immigration system. i welcome that conversation and that dialogue. finally there are people moving to s
will be outlining a new agenda for his party, focusing on issues like education and health care and spend less time talking about the deficit. >> really? oh, yes. eric cantor to the rescue. he is ready to save the republican image and put a stop to the electoral college losses, right? of course, this is not the first time eric cantor has tried to save the party. you see, it actually is the fourth attempt that he has had. in 2009, cantor held a pizza party, remember that? with jeb bush and mitt romney by launching the national council for a new america that didn't work. a year later, cantor was back at it. he was one of the young guns ready to take the republican party by storm. >> there is a better way, and a new team is ready to bring america back. eric cantor, kevin mccarthy, paul ryan joined by common-sense conservative candidates from across the country. together, they are ready to make history. together they are the young guns. >> the good old days. in 2011, cantor launched the you cut program. he wanted to get the public to vote on weekly cuts to federal government. another year, another fail

this is an education process. we need to educate voters. we need to make sure that the smart guys in the primaries have the resources and this whole idea that club for growth and all these guys complaining that karl rove is getting involved in primaries, cry me a river. these guys have been getting involved in primaries for years -- >> how do you know how to pick winners? pat toomey one, he may be a senator for years. you have rubio probably be a senator for years if he doesn't get elected president. sometimes the right cooks up people that are good politicians. sometimes they pick up people like sharron angle who can lose the easy ones and we have seen that. >> there's no question about that. if you look at pat toomey and marco rubio, those guys are stars. this is why you've got to be real careful and why you have to have a vetting process. that doesn't mean you pick the winners and losers. you let the process go forward but make sure everybody has a chance to get thoroughly vetted. that's the problem with sharron angle. >> are you with the establishment or the crazies? >> i'm with the establishment.
't some separate category, but human rights, and everything that that entailed for access to education, to economic participation, political participation, to be free from violence, and i think when she came out of that setting, no matter where one stood on the political spectrum, right or left, the unanimous conclusion was that it was probably her most historic moment from that time until when she said it and that she was such an extraordinary voice for the united states and all of the values that we held true. you remember so well the thunderous, positive reaction she got in that hall, and she went through a littany of violations of women's rights and said that each of those was, indeed, a violation of human rights. it was like the beginning of a movement. it sparked so much. to this day whenever people meet her or me or so many others, they say i'm so and so, and i was in beijing. it's short-hand for i am committed to what this represented and what you did. >> so now what happens with afghanistan? there's a withdrawal afoot. it's accelerating. what happens to the women of afghanista
of thousands of americans who work in national security or education or clean energy not to mention the growth of the entire economy should be put in jeopardy just because folks in washington couldn't come together to eliminate a few special interest tax loopholes or government programs that we agree need some reform. >> our first read team notes that while republicans want to solely talk about the budget the white house does not want to be bogged down on one issue that in the past cost hem political capital. quote, the obama white house wants to overled wa's political circuits to see what it can get through congress without letting congress define what issues get addressed. joining us now kelly o'donnell. our first read team noted the p talking about guns, immigration and today addressing the issue of the sequester. >> reporter: well, there is that sprint in the first year of his second term to try to get as much done as possible. and urgency on all these issues for different reasons. and when it comes to the sequester, the automatic budget cuts, kind of an odd term for what's meant to be aut
the spanish and latino immigrants as a driver for that. the other thing is you see a real education that has gone on by some of the group to try to get more people on board and the big names like focus on the family and freedom and faith coalition came out in support of it. you will get the big names that come out and try to get it across the finish line. >> you can't see the bottom of our screen, but the what would jesus do. i feel the need to explain it. some of these people who are pastors have even told their congregation to go to the bible and read scriptures related to jesus and immigration. >> it's gone beyond just the people behind the pulpit. the pastors are taking it to the pews and they have a 40-day prayer where they are asking the parishioners to read about the immigrant as part of the bible. it's called i'm a strangerer. there is a definite education curve and they focus on states like arizona, california, colorado that could give cover to members who would potentially be nervous about-facing an up tick against them if they support immigration reform. >> it's interesting becaus
those immigration laws fixed. and they want sort of these educational reforms that are more market oriented. so the things that you're starting to see the republican party move on are really things the business wing wants. >> but when you look at the fact, ryan, that is in just the public conversation, that this split in the republican party and clearly those that are considered more establishment. they say those offend a lot of people that they need if they're ever going to be competitive. let me give you an example. are there options that we should consider between the extremes of mass deportation and a pathway to citizenship for those not lawfully present in the united states. >> well, let me say that i do believe that a pathway to citizenship should be the option that the congress selects. i don't see that as an extreme option. >> the gop still sees a path way to citizen ship as an extreme option? is this a sign of progress on the right? >> i guess it depends on where you start from the progress. if it's from 2010, then, yes, absolutely, that's progress. but from ten years ago,
. the peace walk is really telling young people to choose education over guns, not to solve your problems with gun violence but with diplomacy and that's so important and with all of this gun violence happening around america, the stand your ground law, mr. roberts, is a law that in trayvon's situation makes no sense. how can you be the aggressor, how can you initiate the confrontation and then say, after i shoot a kid in the heart, i was just standing my ground? so this trayvon martin amendment to the stand your ground law, simply, you can't be aggressor and start the confrontation and then claim that you stood your ground. >> mr. crump, i want to talk to you about what took place in court this week. zimmerman and his side were trying to push more time before going to trial. explain what happened in court and then who was witness number eight? >> certainly. on february 5th, which would have been trayvon martin's 18th birthday, we had a scheduled court hearing to talk about different issues in the trial and that courtroom on that day, the spirit of trayvon martin was definitely in the cou
is that we really do have to continue to educate the public. that's where the real action will be. yes, you'll have leadership in the senate and house talking back and forth, but the reality for some of us who have been in town in washington is that we've got to make some movement. and the political will of the republicans, i think, to engage with the latino community is somewhat real in certain sectors. you still have to remember the makeup of congress is still dominated by individuals who don't represent minority districts. so that's going to be the real test. my hat goes off to the new members of the house and the senate and the reality that latino -- the dreamers and other people are realizing how important it is. this is an economic issue as much as a security issue. >> i think it's important to underscore that it's the first great step, that there's a bipartisan group in the senate working on this, that there's a group also meeting in the house working on this. >> you're actually me not to harsh the mellow too soon. we should be applauding -- >> i think you're right. the devil is in t
educated. >> but the gi bill is a liberal policy. >> but no, listen to what i'm saying underneath it. i'm talking about the commitment to national defense and understanding of the role of the military and the united states, the relationship between the military national readiness, how we project otherwise in the world. >> but that's the patriotic americans in the united states are african-american? >> sure. but -- >> is there -- >> liberals. those things are -- >> no. but i think when you go underneath, there is a deep well of social conservativism among african-americans. >> i agree 100% with that. but i don't want to see the republican party become a pandering party, either. >> no. that's not what i've said. >> i know that's not what you've said. but our message used to be one of growth, opportunity for everyone. and i think that that still is the message, we just don't get it out in an appropriate way. >> and that's a very good point. >> beyond that, the policy that support that are what's really important and i'd like to see us get back to -- >> can i say quickly, there's been this
, but at the same time, on issues like health care, on the economy, on education even, latinos are more and more in line with the democratic party today. so if immigration reform gets done, and as it looks right now, it's mostly a democratic thing as opposed to republican thing, it will be hard for republicans to just pull away votes, all at once. >> you know, i want to take a look at numbers relative to a pew poll when it talks about all of the top issues. for hispanic registered voters. look where immigration ranks. number five at 34%. so is the focus on immigration, just a complete oversimplifications on really diverse group of people? >> i think there is a little bit of that going on. i think at the same time there is a recognition this is the most pressing issue with regards to the latino community, we have 11 million, 14 million, whatever the number is. number of illegal immigrants in this country. something they have been trying to deal with for a number of years. very important to a lot of voters. at the same time, it's not the most important issue to these people. the people voting are
'm there to figure out why people commit this crime, to show how it happens and educate people. we approach this like it's a continuing story and continue to cover it. >>> from nbc news in washington, the world's longest-running television program, this is "meet the press" with david gregory. substituting today, chuck todd. >>> good morning. it's super bowl sunday. and here in washington, some big showdowns are on the horizon. we've got it all covered this morning, including the big game tonight. bob costas of nbc sports will be here to talk about football and player safety issues. >>> but we want to start with a washington battle on full display this week when the president's pick to head the pentagon, former republican senator chuck hagel, came under fire from members of his own party during a very contentious confirmation hearing. >> name one person in your opinion who's intim nated by the israeli lobby in the united states senate. >> are we right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. >> senator hagel, please answer the question i asked. today, do you think unilateral sanctions would
on marriage that people pay attention. he is able to use the bully pulpit to help educate americans. i've already heard from people today who were not even aware of the ban on the boy scouts having openly gay leaders and members. so i think just from an educational perspective and the certainty of his answer when you saw, when asked it was an immediate yes, no hesitation in any way whatsoever. and i think the american people see that and take that to heart. >> when you listen to staunch conservatives like santorum and rick perry, you have to ask the question, will lifting the ban on gays destroy scouting? they believe it will. >> well, you know, if something was destroyed every time rick perry or rick santorum said that it was going to be destroyed by some cause or action, the planet would be destroyed i think at this point. >> well, why does scouting ban gays? why have they in the past? >> thing has been a real misunderstanding that by banning gay people, they're protecting things from adults with inappropriate sexual activity, when the statement and the facts actually point to someth
that will talk about issues that don't have to do with the budget. immigration, education, health care. cantor is joining a growing list of republicans who are trying to rebrand the party. >> we have not explained why we take the positions that we do. and i think that's one of the lessons learned from this past election. i think that where we have a lot of room to grow as a party, as conservatives is to explain again why we're for the kind of fiscal discipline that we're for. what is the reality and how are we going to help people? >> we had to show our ideas are better at fighting poverty. how our ideas are better at solving health care. how our ideas are better at solving the problems people are experiencing in their daily lives. >> we have to get the republican party back on track. we do that by winning the argument of ideas. >> let's bring in our tuesday gaggle. perry bacon jr., solinda lake and john feehery. john, i'll start with you. this is, i assume, you like hearing the words you are hearing from whether it's eric cantor, paul ryan or what we used there with bobby jindal. the question
, they're education initiatives, simplifying the tax code, health care reforms, and immigration reform. jacqui, these are all kind of popular issues that the right could take the lead on and gain traction with. but what do you think about eric cantor trying to come out to rebrand, especially, when he's been down this rebranding road before? >> yeah, we have seen this before from eric cantor. and you know, the fact that he is making this speech, to try to renew momentum on some of these issues, i mean, is something that he's been wanting to do since december, when the republicans rr pretty divided. but the devil's in the details with these kind of speeches. when you're talking about tax reform, i think he told "national review" that he wants to look at a family-friendly tax reform. well, when you have a budget chairman preparing a budget that's going to balance in ten years, it's going to be really hard to keep things like the child tax credit. so we're going to see how this pans out, because you can't talk about a budget plabalancing in years without cutting some tax cuts that are real
at producing results in areas like education, health care, innovation, and job growth. >> congressman, how does this rebraineding or the mission or the hope that the republican party has of trying to put some new paint on the brand mesh with all of the big policy fights that are going on right now in washington, d.c.? >> well, republicans know they're hurting after the last election, but they think the solution to this is somehow just to change the packaging, to change the way they talk about their policies, when the real problems are their underlying policies themselves. so, for example, the american people support comprehensive immigration reform. the president has put forth a proposal. we're looking at bipartisan proposals emerging from the senate. but the house for the most part under republican control is not taking any leadership on that issue. the same with gun safety issues. very common sense proposals, things like having a universal background check. again, the house is sitting on their hands. all they want to deal with are some of these budget gimmicks they're talking about and not ev
is probably damaging and will damage our national security and will damage our educational system, will have kids getting kicked off of head start. it will mean people who have disabled kids. they recognize that the sequester is a bad idea, but what they've suggested is that the only way to replace it now is for us to cut social security, cut medicare, and not close a single loophole, not raise any additional revenue from the wealthiest americans or corporations who have a lot of lawyers and accountants who are able to maneuver and manage and work and game the system. i have to tell you, if that's an argument that they want to have before the court of public opinion, that is an argument i am more than willing to engage in because i believe the american people understand -- i believe the american people understand that, yes, we need to reduce the deficit, but it shouldn't just be on the backs of seniors. it shouldn't be just on the backs of young people who are trying to get a college education. it should not be on the backs of parents who are trying to give their kids a better start in life.
's in -- >> wholesale, huh? >> educational -- wholesale, trade, transportation, finance and insurance. but also, if you're looking at where the growth is occurring in the larger firms, that's happening in educational services and health and social assistance. those are the firms -- even though there are fewer of them, you know, below average right now in the 10 million plus category, they're really going to be set up for very high growth. >> when you look at these numbers, what's the biggest take-away for you and what does it tell us about the future of women-owned businesses? >> i think the biggest take-away is that this has been happening under our very noses for one thing. growing under the radar, as the report suggests. i think it shows that more and more women are getting into business and are looking around for mentors and role models and seeing more women at the high levels. that is going to help propel this growth forward, for sure. >> julie weeks, good to have you on the program. thank you. >> great to be with you. >>> and speaking of successful women, today's tweet of the day is a reminder fr
